I don’t think that was a design at all imo. I think buddy was going for the layup
Of course it was, they had Bagley right there. If the idea was to get spacing for a layup then that was terrible because the paint was stacked. If not for the offensive rebound then there was no reason to have two bigs in the game and one right under the rim. I'm sure they weren't trying to miss the layup but the O board was their fall back. It almost worked.
